Oh my: 71% of Obama voters regret their votes


Over seven in 10 Obama voters, and 55 percent of Democrats, regret voting for President Obama's reelection in 2012, according to a new Economist/YouGov.com poll.
Conducted to test the media hype about a comeback by 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, the new poll found voters still uninspired by Romney, but also deeply dissatisfied with Obama who has so far failed to capitalize on his victory over 15 months ago. 
The poll asked those who voted for Obama's reelection a simple question: “Do you regret voting for Barack Obama?” 
— Overall, 71 percent said yes, 26 percent no.
— 80 percent of whites said yes, 61 percent of blacks said no and 100 percent of Hispanics said yes. 
— 84 percent of women said yes, and just 61 percent of men agreed. 
— 55 percent of Democrats said yes, as did 71 percent of independents. 
Still, given the choice of Obama versus Romney, Obama supporters said they would stick with their guy, 79 percent to 10 percent for Romney.
Wow.... I wonder whether there's any kind of precedent for this. The only one I can think of this early in a second term would be Richard Nixon in February 1974 (by which time the Watergate scandal was at full boil). But I've never seen numbers on that one.

What do they even mean? From what I can tell from the article, they're saying "I regret it, but given the chance I would do it again."

However, that does *not* mean that they will stop taking his robbed $lu$h or that they will be able stop their donation$ to the Progressive Commie Democrats or to force their hands to hit the button for a non-Democrat. Regret is cheap. If anybody ACTUALLY wants to counter the Progressive Dems in the US or the Green $lu$h $tart Up Ca$h Recipients in Israel, post here and we can link you up with some way to act against the destruction of our (US/Israel) way of life.

Wow! I just <3 this one! I dream of Hussein's numbers being 'zero', but this is NOT a dream, it is reality!

Carl, stand corrected.

I knew it was too good to be true.
